The Tim Burton Exhibition
I'm sure at some point you've came across the genius work of Tim Burton, through his association with such films as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas and more recently Alice In Wonderland. Well now showing at The Australia Center for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation square in Melbourne is a wonderful exhibition dedicated to the work of this amazing director, writer and artist.
The exhibition showcase the work of Burton for his foundation years as an artist and illustrator right up to his latest and current directorial projects. The exhibition also includes a collection of original costumes from Alice In Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands and Batman amongst others. There are many unique film props, puppets, sculptures and the most mesmerizing collection of illustrations and artworks. While you're there you can kick back, take a seat and watch a number of Burton films showing on TV's and screens around the exhibition.
I absolutly recommend a visit (or two if you get a chance) Hire one of the auto guides for only $5 extra it's well worth it as it features a number of interviews and extras. Bring your kids along too, there's a large activity center set up at the back of the exhibition just for them. But hurry the show closes on the 10th of October.
